University of Idaho student enrollment up 3 percent

Associated Press

The University of Idaho reports more than 11,500 students are enrolled this semester, up three percent from the same time last year.

Those numbers include full-time and part-time students. The university also says nearly 10,300 students were enrolled at the main campus in Moscow in the spring term, up 2 percent from the same time last year.

More freshmen than last year returned for the spring semester. Ninety-three percent of freshmen students returned for the spring semester, up 3 percent from the same time in 2009.

The university releases enrollment numbers on the tenth day of class, deemed a good measuring stick because it doesn’t count students who enroll on the first day but quickly drop out.
